Argus Panoptes is an 100-eyed giant in Greek mythology. Panoptic means seeing the whole at one view. The wall painting above by  Bernado Pinturicchio shows the well-known legend of Argus guarding Io and hypnotized by the music of Mercury before being beheaded by the later. The painting is found in Borgia Apartment, Vatican.

More information on eponyms from mythology can be found in this book.
